Predicted Everton XI to take on West Ham in Carabao Cup clash: Allan starts

The Toffees will be chasing a place in the last eight this evening.

Everton take on West Ham United tonight looking to secure a place in the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup at Goodison Park.

The Toffees have enjoyed a perfect start to their Premier League campaign, winning against Tottenham, West Brom and Crystal Palace.

Tonight might see Carlo Ancelotti make some changes to his team, although he will be all too aware of how long it is since Everton won a trophy.

Ahead of tonight’s game, we looked at how Everton might line up this evening.

In goal and back four

Jordan Pickford started in goal at Fleetwood in the last round and he will probably keep his place here.

Both of the full-backs could be changed, however, with Jonjoe Kenny starting at right-back and Niels Nkounkou at left-back.

Michael Keane and Yerry Mina played at Saturday but the Colombian might not be risked in the cup.

With his injury record not exactly outstanding, Lucas Digne could be called upon as a left-sided centre-back to partner Keane.

Midfield

Ancelotti could choose to make some changes to his midfield three for the visit of West Ham.

Bernard scored at Fleetwood and he could earn another chance to impress in the middle of the park.

Gylfi Sigurdsson is another who might get the chance to shine, having fallen down the pecking order this season.

 

The £100,000-a-week midfielder has fallen behind Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure since they both arrived in the summer.

Alongside Bernard and Sigurdsson, Ancelotti could utilise the energy of Allan and he could keep his place.

In attack

Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison are both in great form and Ancelotti might stick with the momentum and play both.

James Rodriguez doesn’t seem likely to start so he could drop to the bench for this one.

That might hand a chance to Moise Kean who will be desperate to prove his worth this season.

The ex-Juventus player scored a late goal in the win over Fleetwood in the last round and the 20-year-old could relish the run-out.

Here is how Everton’s team might look this evening:
